No sooner than the National Science and Maths Quiz took off had the much-awaited upsets began.
Apam Senior High handed an unexpected defeat to favourites, Winneba SHS, in one of the two opening contests.
The competition which was held at the New N Block at the University of Ghana, also featured Daboase Senior High and Technical School.
Winneba SHS, after giving giants, Wesley Girls SHS a run for their money at the one-eighth stage in 2018 and producing an impressive performance during the qualifiers, were tipped to win this contest but Apam SHS had other ideas.
They upstaged the favourites and won the contest as if it was child’s play.
Besides impressing throughout the contest, Apam came close to scoring a perfect score in Round Three, known as Problem of the Day. They scored nine out of the ten available points.
The Problem, however, gave problems to their challengers as Winneba SHS and Daboase SHTS only earned two points each.
Apam SHS ended the contest with 62 points. Winneba trailed with 21 points while the underdogs, Daboase SHTS crushed out with just five points.
